    I was trying to get some sleep, but this wind just won't let me. It sounds like a train running right beside my window. And there's a tree branch beating against the side of my house. Friday we had three tornado's here in lower TN. I watched one land a couple miles from my house. My turkeys like to roost in the backyard, but the way this wind is blowing i bet they are having a rough time roosting. Anyone else having these high pressure winds?

    The "T" word is not allowed to be uttered in January, that is a summer word around here - and not a nice one.

    Hope you find some sleep soon.

    Our wind hasn't been too bad, highest gust today was 78mph.

    Glad we didn't have winds like that with the ie, we lost enough big tree branches and tree tops. Can't imagine how much more would have come down with those kinds of winds.

    We're next in line for that wind today.
    Already battened down the hatches in the barn and am hoping for no electricity loss here in SWVA.

    We are here in west Alabama. It woke me many times, along with heavy deluges of rain. Some counties have flood warnings. It doesn't comfort me knowing how many tall trees we are surrounded by. This morning they are talking about tornado watches and warnings, flood warnings and wind advisories. Whew!

    Winds like that are normal in Kansas. T's should start to pop up in march april or so. Any Ts in Florida yet? I remember the groundhog T in 07.

    Sitting here listening to the wind knock stuff around in NW Georgia! I am just getting started researching what we need for a few backyard chickens, and can't help but wonder how rainy windy days like this will affect them. I have family near Dallas, TX and they had Ts this week...yikes.
